Hi! Just wanted to say 1) WELCOME and 2) the Seattle Review of Books is a great site, isn't it? Even though I no longer live in Seattle, I still keep up with the reviews and links and upcoming events. (Also, I read Thi Bui's The Best We Could Do last summer—it's so good—and I envy your upcoming Seattle Reads conversations.)
If you'd like to know a little more about what to expect from Nicole Dieker Dot Com: I run a post a day, most of which are about writing, freelancing, and developing a long-term creative practice. Some of these posts are also about what I'm learning as I draft my next book (which I call "NEXT BOOK," because I'm an Old Millennial who still thinks all caps are cool). Most recently, I've been outlining my thoughts on developing plot and character through conflict.
Plus book reviews, Friday open threads, guest posts, AND MORE.
My most recent greatest hits are listed in the right-hand column, if you'd like to see what other readers have enjoyed. (If you're reading this on a phone: just keep scrolling until they show up.)
So... welcome! Glad to have you here, feel free to subscribe by email or RSS, and hope to see you in the comments section! ❤️
